Akshay Kumar means 'Dhamaka' & we all know that. The much awaited film of the year, Rustom has hit the theatres yesterday (August 12, 2016) and very soon the film was inundated with some mixed reviews by most of the entertainment websites.
According to Thandani the opening day figures of "Rustom" can touch the Rs 12-13 crore mark. "There is a holiday period ahead and it seems both the films will benefit from it. I think over the weekend 'Rustom' should do Rs 40 crore," he added.
Distributor Akshay Rathi says the average occupancy of Akshay Kumar-starrer for day one stands somewhere around 45-50 per cent, which is better than the Hrithik-Pooja Hegde's movie, which is around 35 per cent.
